StarCraft II: Q&A Round 21
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The 21st Q&A focusing on answers to fan submitted questions about StarCraft II, Blizzard Entertainment's long awaited sequel to the original StarCraft, is now available. The latest information update also includes a screenshot of one of the new Terran units in action. SC II will pick up the storyline four years after the end of Brood War and will introduce competitive new multiplayer action for players to enjoy.

Chat with Devs:
Since the Terran Ghost has an upgradable EMP ability, the Terran Nomad's has been given the ability to create stationary defenses in addition to its Defense Matrix ability. One of the new stationary defenses is the Auto-Turret, which can attack ground units,
We are hoping the Nomad's new abilities will innovate its role, in addition to being a detector.

1. Do you have any plan to put the auto-casting ability into StarCraft II units, just like in Warcraft III?
At the moment, Medics are the only units that we have deemed fit to have an auto-cast ability. StarCraft II, compared to Warcraft III, has fewer abilities but are much more potent when executed properly, thus making them manual cast will give players a huge opportunity to demonstrate much skill in the game.

4. It is not possible to watch how a mouse was moved in a saved replay game. Could you make this possible to see the movement of mouse?
We would also like the mouse to be viewable in saved replays, however, it may be more likely that well have the options to show both the view of the players playing as well as selection icons of the units being currently selected in the replay.

5. When grouping units to a control group, how many units could be added to one group?
Currently, players are able to select more than 150 units in a single control group. The final actual number will be determined by hardware performance tests on the game, but should still be close to that number.
The rest of the answers can be found at the link below.
